If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/3/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

groundfloor23smallIn a bizarre move, TBS canceled one of my favorite comedies, Ground Floor, so next week’s season finale will be the series finale. It’s odd, since the ratings have been going UP for the show, and it sucks since I’m sure they didn’t find out about it much earlier than the news was released to the public, so I doubt they had time to prepare, which means the finale may suck for a series ender. 🙁

The show’s been on a great trend, getting Mansfield more involved with all the others (last week’s dinner with Brody, Jenny, Harvard, & Lindsay was particularly funny). Jenny has gone back to college — with Mansfield’s help — and Brody is now living with Jenny in her apartment. The only sticking point has been that Jenny told Brody she never wanted to get married. With the show ending next week, unless they knew ahead of time and planned for it somehow, we’ll never see if he’s able to change her mind. And don’t let the episode title & description fool you, because if it does, I think you’ll be disappointed! 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “The Proposal Pt 1,” Brody’s ex-girlfriend Heather (Anna Camp) returns as a partner in the company, and Brody thinks he’s falling behind. Jenny decides to try to cheer him up by helping him cross something off his “goal” list. Lindsay helps Mansfield when his daughter’s perfect island wedding goes awry.

To see if Lindsay & Jenny can help Mansfield & Brody, tune in to TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, NCIS (Palmer’s baby shower at work!), Hotel Showdown, Kate Plus 8, Married at First Sight , NCIS: NOLA (CGIS Agent Abigail Borin is back — Borin needs her own show: CGIS!), Chicago Fire, Chopped, Forever, Person of Interest, Restaurant Startup, & Cougar Town.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Kyle’s Choice

faceoff23smallOne series that is always good for an entertaining hour of television is Syfy’s special effects makeup competition series, Face Off. For the eighth season, they mixed things up by bringing back three former champions to coach teams of 5 new contestants. Rayce, Anthony, and Laura are also competing — if one of their players win, they also win, and if all of their players are eliminated, they are also eliminated. The season has been off to a great start so far. In the two-part premiere, groups of contestants had to create a pair of aliens and their primate leader, which were judged by guest Rick Baker. And last week, the artists were paired up and had to come up with a deadly predator that combined elements of an animal with a flower. Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson helped to judge the creations.

I’m always amazed with what these contestants are able to do in such a short time. Having the mentors there this time around also adds an interesting new element to the series. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the remaining 13 competitors come up with in tonight’s Tim Burton-inspired challenge!

If you missed any of the first 3 episodes of this season, you can catch up tonight as Syfy will be airing a marathon starting at 6pm ET/PT leading up to tonight’s new episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Royal Flush,” the first individual Spotlight Challenge of the competition finds the 13 remaining artists tasked with making playing cards come alive in the whimsical style of Tim Burton.

See who makes up the best playing cards tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agent Carter, Forever, Parks and Recreation, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Flash, Supernatural, Switched at Birth, Justified, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Cougar Town, Sirens, and Kroll Show.
